:twisted: I always make it a habit to pick up trash on every trip out on the water. My club also has a clean up every year at Rainbow Lake in South Jersey. Here's some trash from about two months ago......

Unfortunately it's illegal...ethically speaking, I'm not exactly sure...

That's cool, one of the games we play on the river is grabbing the styrofoam worm cups out of the water on the fly. :shock:

This big bag is what I picked up along the river shores while camping this past weekend. This next one up, I almost got a full small bag of trash while fishing this small lake near my work. Went to a friend's lake today after work and picked up this half bag of trash. I had another bag that was full but before I could get it in the pic with this bag, my buddy got it. Got this big walmart bag full when I fished a lake close to the house.
